Back by popular demand, festival-goers will be entertained by Percussion Unlimited on Saturday and The Street Band on Sunday. Another returning attraction is the very popular dog show, organised by 'Beastly Thoughts' professional dog services, which will be on Sunday at noon. In a very welcome change this year, a local scout group will be organising the parking on site and at Peate's Mill, the official event car park. They are using the festival as part of their fund-raising effort to send a representative to the World Scout Jamboree in Japan in 2015, so expect them to be shaking their buckets! They will also be entertaining the crowds with their impressive drum group. Please support them.
